Happy Independence Day, Modern Philosophers! I just put out the flag so that the Stars and Stripes are flying proudly outside The House on the Hill. I’m wearing my Red, White, and Blue tie dyed toga and the crazy Uncle Sam I found on my porch.
So what are you doing today to celebrate the birthday of the greatest nation in the world? Come on, my non-American readers, you know America is awesome!
I’m having a huge barbecue at The House on the Hill. Uncle Sam is the Guest of Honor and I am grilling up some red Yankee Doodle Dogs as they are his favorite. The Ghosts of some of the Founding Fathers are also scheduled to attend.
After we eat, play Zombie Horseshoes, and turn the street in front of my house into Maine’s longest Slip-n-Slide, we’re going to retire inside for our annual screening of Independence Day. My Alien friends LOVE getting a little tipsy, watching the flick, and doing a running commentary on it. I’ll try to write a post about it later.
We might go to the parade if it’s not too hot, and then tonight, we head up to the roof, which Gary the Gargoyle is happy to share wiht us for the night, to watch the Fireworks Show. We’ve got a perfect view of the river from the roof and can see the light show without having to deal with the crowds.
Depending on how the day goes, and factoring in the time difference, we might hop on an Alien Cruiser and zip over to Vatican City to catch some of the Pope’s Springsteen Concert and Fireworks Blow Out. It’s going to be a fun day!
So what about you, Modern Philosophers? How do you celebrate Independence Day? How are you going to enjoy this most Patriotic of Holidays? What did you get America for its birthday?
Have a happy and safe Fourth!!!
